LonasTrinity Welcomes our new Nursery Supervisor

Teresa Lonas

We are delighted to introduce Trinity’s new Sunday morning nursery care-giver – Ms. Teresa Lonas. Teresa currently cares for nursery and Pre-K children during the week at the Athletic Club of Columbus, our near Broad Street neighbors, and our Rector has known her for more than seven years. She is a delightful, warm person who shows great attention and gentle care for the children in her charge. She will be a wonderful addition to our Sunday morning life at Trinity.
 Happily, Teresa’s hours each Sunday will be 9:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., designed to encourage families with children to participate in adult formation as well as worship.
We hope you will plan to visit the nursery in these weeks leading up to and following Easter so that you can greet Teresa warmly and say hi to our wonderful Trinity children.
